Body Care Routine

A complete guide to ultimate skin hydration and nourishment

Your skin is the largest organ you have. It protects you from external influences and plays a crucial role in your overall health and well-being. Throughout the different seasons, your skin can react to changing weather conditions. During the summer, you may experience dry or sensitive skin more quickly, making hydration and nourishment essential.

In skincare, you often encounter the terms "hydrating" and "nourishing." But what do these terms actually mean? Both are essential for achieving healthy, radiant skin. Read on to discover the difference between hydrating and nourishing, and how to effectively incorporate these methods into your daily body care routine.

Hydrating vs. Nourishing

Body care plays a crucial role in maintaining healthy and radiant skin. Two of the most common terms you encounter in skincare products are "hydrating" and "nourishing". But what do these terms actually mean, and why are they important for your skin?

Hydrating and nourishing are two different methods to keep your skin healthy. Hydrating means adding moisture to the skin, while nourishing involves applying lipids (fat-like substances naturally found in your body). Both are essential, but they address different aspects of skincare.

Lipids, such as fats, oils, and certain vitamins (A, D, E, and K), are essential for the skin's barrier function. They help strengthen the skin barrier, retain moisture, and keep harmful substances out. A lack of lipids can damage your skin and make it more susceptible to dryness and irritation.

How do you know if your skin needs extra hydration or nourishment? Skin that feels dry, tight, or flaky likely needs more moisture. Fine lines can also become more visible due to a lack of hydration. A dull, rough, or sensitive skin can indicate a shortage of lipids. Redness and irritations are also signs that your skin may need extra nourishment.

For optimal skin health, a balance between hydration and lipids is essential. Therefore, it is recommended to use skincare products that have both hydrating and nourishing properties. This approach ensures that your skin not only receives moisture but can also retain it effectively.

Our ultimate body care routine consists of four steps you can follow for the best results:

Step 1


Start by exfoliating your skin to remove dead skin cells. This helps your skin better absorb other products. Use a body scrub weekly, such as our Caring Body Scrub with shea butter and apricot kernels, or the Deep Salt Body Scrub with sea salt particles and hemp seed oil. These scrubs nourish your skin with essential oils while exfoliating.

Step 2


Cleanse your skin with a mild body wash to remove dirt without stripping away the natural oils that protect and keep your skin supple. Our natural body wash is formulated with coco-glucoside, a coconut and sugar-based ingredient that cleanses the skin gently but effectively. Additionally, the body wash is enriched with natural glycerin, which hydrates the skin.

Step 3


After showering, it's important to retain moisture in your skin by nourishing it with products like our Body Lotion, Body Cream, or Body Oil. These are rich in vitamins A and E that restore, nourish, and soften the skin.

  • Our Body Lotion, enriched with hazelnut seed oil and shea butter, provides optimal care with a lightweight formula that absorbs quickly.

  • The Body Cream, featuring sunflower oil and shea butter, has a richer consistency that is ideal for dry skin. Use the Body Cream, for example, specifically on your legs for targeted care.

  • The Dry Body Oil, formulated with golden seaweed, sweet almond oil, and upcycled prickly pear oil, restores, hydrates, and softens the skin. This oil is perfect after a day in the sun, leaving a silky glow without a greasy finish.
Step 4


Once your body care products have fully absorbed into the skin, the final step is to protect your skin from harmful UV rays. Our natural, mineral sunscreen forms a physical shield that reflects UV rays. This means the rays are bounced off before they can penetrate the skin and cause damage. The mineral sun protection, based on non-nano zinc oxide, provides excellent protection against both UVA and UVB rays, and is gentle on both the skin and the ocean.
